For over 30 years Academy Ballet has been one of Sydney’s leading classical ballet schools. Located in Alexandria, Academy Ballet boasts 3 studios with sprung flooring and Tarkett, as well as a spacious dressing room with individual change rooms.
Academy Ballet teaches the Royal Academy of Dance syllabus, recognised throughout the world as one of the best methods of training classical ballet dancers. The success rate in annual Royal Academy of Dance examinations and school awards are consistently high. As well as classical ballet we offer contemporary, character, jazz and musical theatre.
The Director, Sinead Vidler, aims to cater for students of all ages and abilities – from those who wish to pursue a career in dance, to those that just love this beautiful art form.
Sinead continues the traditions instilled in her by her teacher, mentor and Founding Director of Academy Ballet, Nicholina Kuner.
The school has two distinct streams: the Children’s Evening School and the Fulltime Diploma. The Evening School focuses on students studying ballet vocationally, allowing them to attend school without interference. The Diploma is for students pursuing a career in dance is headed by former Principal Artiste of The Australian Ballet, Vicki Attard alongside former ballerina with The Royal Ballet, Gillian Revie
In 2012 Academy Ballet launched its HSC course, allowing students to combine that which they love, dance, with their education. HSC dance is run by Martinique Cavallaro.
We are proud of our school which is based on traditions — the centuries-old traditions of classical ballet, the traditions of the Royal Academy of Dance in Australia and the traditions necessary to instil both technique and the love of dance necessary to succeed in this difficult but beautiful art form.
